Dresdner Molkerei Gebrüder Pfund

Welcome to the most beautiful milk shop in the world

The “most beautiful dairy shop in the world”, which was opened in 1892 by the Pfund brothers, is today one of the most popular attractions in Dresden and offers you a fascinating look as well as a wide variety of cheese specialities and regional products.

With 247.9 m² of hand-painted tiles from Villeroy & Boch, the shop tells the story of the Pfund brothers. Unique in this world, our milk shop has been entered into the Guinness Book of Records.

A fairytale world of motifs awaits you on site that will amaze you. Meanwhile, you can indulge yourself with a glass of fresh milk, buttermilk, a cheese platter or other delicacies from our range.

The Pfund brothers were known in the city for their entrepreneurial spirit and wealth of ideas. The main focus was on supplying the people of Dresden with regional and high-quality products.

We took up this idea and opened another shop right next to our beautiful milk shop – our “Pfunds Spezialitätenladen”. This expands our range of regional products and offers a snack bar in addition to an extensive assortment.

On our homepage you can find out all about the Pfunds Dairy and get in the mood for your visit with us. We look forward to seeing you!

Award 2019

Germany's best cheese counter

Deutschlands beste Käsetheke

Since 24.09.2019, we have officially and proudly held the title of “Germany’s best cheese counter”.

This award has a very special value for us, as we were not able to apply for this award ourselves. Only customers of the individual shops had the opportunity to submit a proposal.

An expert jury visited the stores with the most votes unannounced and made an assessment in four categories – assortment, presentation, advice and overall impression.

After the in-depth review, the award ceremony with all nominees took place in Hamburg at the end of September. One winner was chosen per category.
To our delight, we were able to convince in all categories and were therefore awarded for the best overall impression. The trophy and the official certificate were accepted by our Managing Director and Ina Stephan (Milk Shop Manager). A memorable moment in the history of our beautiful milk shop.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their trust and nomination! This is a special honour for us and we will continue to do our best for you.

our seasonal recommendation

a snack at the "Pfunds Spezialitätenladen"

An exploration tour through Dresden and the Neustadt district is only half as entertaining when your stomach is rumbling. We therefore recommend our snack stand right next to our Dairy Shop. You will find a small but fine selection of snacks here.

A creamy soft ice cream from Eis-Kyle and a piece of Dresdner Eierschecke, which is made according to a traditional family recipe from the Dresdner Kaffeestübchen, are our summer recommendation. Tradition and enjoyment for a perfect summer’s day.

You will find a selection of our soft ice cream varieties directly at the entrance to the “Pfunds Spezialitätenladen”.

The evening with whisky & cheese tasting was just great! Thank you! We will definitely be back.
